The Buhari Support Organisation (BSO) has branded former Vice President Atiku Abubakar a “bloody liar” for claiming that President Muhammadu Buhari was banned from the United States of America for 15 years as a result of religious considerations.

The group was reacting to the statement made by the former Vice President to the effect that his ban from entering the US is akin to the one Buhari experienced before he became President. The Secretary of BSO, Enugu State Chapter, Mr. Godwin Onwusi, who issued a statement yesterday in Enugu, also dismissed Atiku’s position that he would easily defeat Buhari in the 2019 presidential elections, challenging the Waziri Adamawa to get first the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) before talking about defeating Buhari.

The BSO Secretary said: “I was highly outraged when I read the Atiku Abubakar, Waziri Adamawa’s false statement that Buhari was banned for 15 years by the US before he became president. With greatest respect on this score one won’t hesitate to classify Atiku as a bloody liar.

“I remember vividly how I escorted my uncle Mr Osita Okechukwu, to join Buhari's delegation to World Igbo Congress in 2004. The World Igbo Congress held that year at New Jersey and Buhari addressed the Congress. So how can somebody of former Vice President's high caliber, because of politics bandy such falsehood just to cleanse himself?

“The less than transparent transaction between Atiku and US former Congressman, William Jefferson is common knowledge. Therefore, he should not crave immunity with the highest and coveted office of our dear country.

“It pains us, the members of the BSO whenever anyone wittingly or unwittingly wants to taint the impeccable character of Mr President. He is not a saint, but towers above most leaders with his uncommon integrity quotient.”

When asked his take on Atiku’s position that he will defeat Buhari in 2019 presidential bid, Barrister Onwusi quipped: “Let Waziri Adamawa first win Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential ticket, before he defeats Buhari. One could have reasoned that he could first secure a presidential ticket before castigating Buhari?

“Today hate or like Buhari, with endorsement coming from all over the country, even His Excellency, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, who was one of his traducers in 2014, he is assured of All Progressives Congress (APC)’s ticket. Let Atiku secure ticket first.”

Reminded of Atiku’s high point that a lot of those who supported Buhari in 2015, will no longer support him, Onwusi said: “It is natural that while the Atikus are leaving some others are coming, adding that what matters is how many coming in, for politics is a game of numbers.

Onwusi expressed confidence that “we in the South-East, who sincerely believe that Buhari will fix our dilapidated and abandoned federal roads, 2nd Niger Bridge, revamp Enugu Coal and return sanity to our fatherland, will not gamble with those who squandered our patrimony.”
